The Fnatic team is a UK-based Esports organization that was founded by a mother and son, Anne and Sam Mathews, in 2004. Sam was in his late teens at the time and risked all of his finances to send his team to compete in an Enemy Territory tournament in Las Vegas, NV. His team won, and they decided to stick together to compete in other games such as Quake. They succeeded in winning many tournaments and moved on to the now bigger games as they were released.
Since then, the Fnatic team has gone on to become one of the biggest eSports organizations in the EU, and has built offices in the US, Germany and Serbia in order to ensure that it has access to the top video gamers in both NA and the EU. So far, they have created competitive teams for games such as StarCraft II, Battlefield 4, League of Legends, Dota 2, CS:GO, Fortnite, and Apex Legends among many others. Some famous video gamers who spent their early careers in Fnatic include Cyanide and sOAZED. They were also ranked #6 On Forbes’ list of top 12 of 2018’s World’s most Valuable Esports Companies.
